In just two weeks, Detroit rhyme slinger Big Sean will finally – no pun intended –release his much-anticipated debut studio album Finally Famous and the G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam signee has plenty of good company on his upcoming LP, according to a newly leaked track featuring mentor Kanye West and southern spitter Roscoe Dash titled “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay.”
Produced by Pop Wansel and legendary Houston producer Mike Dean, the radio-friendly song aims high with its big Roscoe Dash hook and cocksure raps from both Sean and Kanye. Aimed for crossover appeal, the song’s smooth title somewhat belies the actual energy and amped raps within the song. Fans on the Web have reacted to the track, with most supporting the output while others had some slight criticism.
Twitter was abuzz last night with the song’s title becoming a top trending topic, thus marking the leak a hit with many fans. “Yea so i’ma have “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay” on repeat for the rest of the night,” tweeted @JhunM. Excited fan @TinaFFOE added, “I have already heard “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay” after @BigSean performed it with Kanye in NYC! The song is AMAZING! Another hit!!”
User @mawrqus remarked on Big Sean’s growing notoriety, especially after snagging the global trending topic nod on Twitter. “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay is A WORLDWIDE TRENDING TOPIC…. @BigSean is Finally Famous,” he cleverly tweeted. Fan @JosephDexter critically quipped, “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay is annoyingly bangin.”
Big Sean’s major label debut Finally Famous will be released on June 28 after the rapper dropped a trio of critically acclaimed mixtapes bearing the same name. Features include Chris Brown, the aforementioned Kanye West and production from Yeezy’s production mentor No I.D.
